Ultrasound Imaging of Breast Implants

Breast implants unfortunately do not last a lifetime. Currently, the FDA recommends MRI imaging of newly placed silicone breast implants 3 to 5 years and 7 years after placement. Dr. Brad Bengtson has initiated a new research study protocol to determine if new Hi Resolution Ultrasound is an effective method and alternative to MRI to monitor the function and condition of your breast implants. In 2012 Dr. Bengtson received the prestigious Tiffany Award by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for his work utilizing High Resolution Ultrasound examining gel breast implants and was awarded Best Research Paper in North America from the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.  Please contact Dr. Bengtson to determine if you would be a good candidate to be enrolled in our ongoing IRB study protocol for breast enhancement patients.
